I agree! I liked the Maslow a lot when I first got it, but I felt GC was lacking some (not sure how or why) and was not very impressed with the “usability” of it. I like to feel that I am an intuitive person and can usually figure programs out, but I found myself constantly coming here to learn “what to do next” and I think I remember some of the functions (like go to) didn’t really work for me. I stepped away for a bit as I was a little frustrated (life happened mainly as well), and in that time, I had gotten a new laptop. I went back to load GC on it and it wasn’t happening (more frustration). I came here, learned about WC, and haven’t looked back. I am very happy with it.
WC also allows you to flash the firmware to the mega directly from it, instead of having to use Arduino IDE/Platform IO, so that is a huge plus for me as it takes out a lot of steps there if you have to start over with your machine. I am also moving to an RPi, and if you ever have to change RPi’s or controlling computers, you can copy your webcontrol.json file over to the new machine, and all the calibration/machine set up should transfer over (@Orob correct me if I’m wrong here).
Another aspect is once you have your machine set up and you extend your chains, you can mark the sprocket and chain on both motors, and if the machine ever loses its place, you just follow the “reset chains” portion and you just rotate the sprockets, put your marked link back on, click a button, and off you go. I think with GC, you had to do the whole setup process again.
Just my 2 cents, but I like it a lot!!!
